Manchester United beat as a guest team of Chelsea now face Arsenal in a forgotten forever derby, which for many years has only one favorite and it says Manchester. Recent form of both teams is fundamentally different Arsenal presents mediocre, while Manchester plays perfectly. I do a lot of differences in the two teams, the most dramatic is that last season in the collision Van Persie playing side Arsenal and now he will be on the side of the United. Scary game, however, is waiting for us, Podolski scored herself to the “Old Trafford” but Wenger is ready for a new battle with Sir Alex Ferguson. Tough game awaits us with many goals, but I think it will be a surprise goals and playing ball. They will offer the best that they can do, of course they beat on Saturday his rival – DAC, but as ever there was damn weak, loss of Norwich and that of Schalke clearly illustrate this. Manchester United certainly do not think losing points at home to Arsenal and will be set only for victory. It is this attitude of winning the Premier League teams sometimes leads to underestimate their opponents and often underestimate what proved to be fatal. I think drunk with his many consecutive success at Arsenal, Sir Alex will put again the same pattern of play and the same players who had used before. So Arsene Wenger will be ready to answer the challenge and become an interesting match in which Arsenal will not lose.

“Camp Nou” opens the doors to FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, who will compete with each other for the first time in season 2012/2013. Although not in a league game, the rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid always the brand in world football. Worldwide will trembles in anticipation of this meeting. “Catalans” compelling when Tito began Vilyanova – 5-1 win over Real Sociedad. However, it is important to note that Real Sociedad is not a good measure of class, the biggest meetings yet to come. However, Barcelona showed exemplary game and within the first half part of all was decided. From what I saw can be found that the style of Tito Vilyanova is exactly the same compared to that of Josep Guardiola. This is perfectly understandable, though Vilyanova was first assistant to Guardiola and currently appears as the first successor at the helm of the team. Real Madrid coach refrain castle and this is normal. They Jose Mourinho, who ended a lack of trophies La Liga. Graduates of trophy Mourinho reached, it can be said that they won it in the middle of “Camp Nou” at the end of last season. Real Madrid is a team with character and yet misstep in the first league game will show the best of themselves. My opinion is that if you have to judge by the technique of players, it should Barcelona win, but there is one other very important component – the fighting spirit. Real Madrid will be distributed completely and with “fighters” in midfield as Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira can present surprise. In the first encounter many professionals make a serious advantage of Barcelona derby but like always possible everything. I think looks better in this case to play for a draw or win for Real Madrid. “White Ballet” a very strong background and demonstrated excellent game counterattack. I expect a strong performance from the players Mourinho and at least equal to them in the first meeting.
After a short break Premier League is back. Already in the first round outlines some games. After one year stay in the Championship West Ham back in the elite of the island. They made a disastrous season two years ago and deservedly found themselves in the second level, but from that time until now “hammers” progressed more and more. A huge bonus for their return is the fact that their first match will be true to their audiences who support them. Sam Allardyce made some drastic changes soon led the team shortly after the fall and has become evident that these changes were for the good of the club. This summer “hammers” parted with all redundant and joined the team Jussi Yaaskenlaynen former goalkeeper Bolton, who left after the fall of the elite team, Mohammed Diame one of the best “Gone” in the Premier League of Tarrant Modibo Maiga Sochaux, the young hopeful in the framework of the door Rafael Spigo. Really good transfer policy, which give effect in the lower echelon. Aston Villa after only save one round before the end of last season, parted with very unsuccessful coach Alan McLean and his deputy was appointed who has made a great season with Norwich Paul Lambert. This summer American owners decided to allocate funds for new signings after the failure last season. Four players have joined Aston Villa – Karim El Ahmadi, Brett Holmant, Matthew Walton and Ron Vlaar. The only concern is the fact that three of these players for first taste of English football and certainly will need time to adapt. Before this game the two teams have met 44 times targets of “Boleyn Ground,” the asset by these games is 20/16/8. I expect West Ham to make the dream start the new season and return to the top, with victory over their own audience.
Grasshoppers meet Basel match of the 3rd round of the Swiss League Expo. Inconsistent play by Grashopars who lost their household of Zion on the start, then won for the visit of Young Boys 1-0. This team is very unpredictable, but when you play against Basel experiencing serious difficulties. Overall, this derby is one of the oldest in Switzerland and around the charge is very serious. You will see open football, which will appeal to all lovers of many attacks and interesting situations to both doors. Grashopars will try to beat your opponent, but will hardly be able to do so. Guests are seriously weakened further after leaving Zherdan Shaqiri that strengthen Bayern Munich. So the left side of their attack Basel will have to use another player, probably right there would have Shtoker Valentin, who last season had lost his place. Attack of Basel is one of the strongest in the entire league and I think despite the separation Shaqiri team will continue to be most effective throughout Switzerland. Basel started with a victory, but then conceded boring draw against Lucerne to its own audience – 2:2. At this stage in Switzerland are very few teams that could oppose Basel, in my opinion at this stage Grashopars is not one of those teams. Guests will leave with victory and will be increasingly closer to first place before this circle is occupied by the impeccable team of Zion.

Portugal will face Spain in the semifinal match of Euro 2012, held in Poland and Ukraine. Paulo Bento boys were in the so-called “group of death” along with teams from Germany, Holland and Denmark. In their first clash of group “Mariners” recorded with minimum 0-1 loss against the German team, although the team played well and had their chances but missed them. In the second match Portugal failed to make a dramatic 3-2 victory against the tough team of Denmark and preserve their chances of ranking ahead to a 2-1 success came against the team of Holland, in which Cristiano Ronaldo scored both goals and hit two beams, they finally showed what he is capable. Portugal in the quarterfinals failed to eliminate the minimum Czech Republic 1-0, the only goal was the case again zvezadata team Cristiano Ronaldo. Paulo Bento will not be able to rely on injured Helder Postiga. Spain was in a group with teams from Italy, Ireland and Hatvatiya. In his first match “whiz la Rocha ’1-1 record against Italy to come to defeat against Ireland 4-0 and 1-0 against Croatia. Spain in the quarterfinals to face France and managed to eliminate them after a 2-0 success after hits on Xabi Alonso. Vicente del Bosque will be able to rely on the best available to. Expect to witness a very attractive quality and impact, in that I believe “la Rocha beast” will be able to outwit his ambitious rival and will qualify for the finals.
National team of the Netherlands will face his old acquaintance Denmark in the first match for both teams in Group C of Euro 2012. Both teams will enter the pitch at the stadium “Metalist” in Kharkov, on Saturday (6/9/2012)
Netherlands failed to qualify for Euro 2012 without problems, after finishing a leadership position in their qualifying group. In qualifying for the European football championship, “Tulip” won first place with a total of 27 points, ahead of runner team in Sweden. Definitely under the guidance of coach Bert van Marvayk Dutch national team represents more than excellent, as we all remember what made just two years ago in the finals of the World Cup. Then just a little lacking to triumph with the trophy, but ultimately finished second, assuming minimal loss 1-0 after extra time, the team of Spain. “Orange” was literally revived under the leadership of coach Bert van Marvayk that since taking the national team of Holland defeats the “tulip” count on the fingers of one hand. Dutch national team and has good traditions when it comes to European Cup finals, during the last six evrofinali have their account won a Cup, three semifinals and two quarterfinals, but recently suffered a drop in the group phase in already back in 1980. But now the situation for the Dutch national team is much more complicated, since their group is one of the most difficult of this tournament. Besides the team of Denmark, a company of “Tulips” and make more national teams of Germany and Portugal, which are also linked by experts to be among the favorites at this year’s European Championships.
Denmark also demonstrate consistency when it comes to euro finals, during the last eight tournaments on the continent have missed a single in 2008. The Danes even boast and title euro championship like this happened in 1992 in Sweden, but realistically since then fail to achieve anything significant, but their best performance after surprisingly winning the trophy was reaching quarter in 2004. For this championship, the national team of Denmark won no problem qualifying group, in competition for teams like Norway and Portugal, and now it’s fate brought them together again in a group with “Iberians”. For the upcoming season, coach Morten Olsen, the Danes were forced to suffer quite a serious blow after it emerged that he could rely on their goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen. Watchman of England Stoke City with a back injury that occur during the friendly match of Danes in Brazil last week ended 3-1 in favor of “selesao.” So his place in the composition of Denmark will take on Leicester goalkeeper – Kasper Schmeichel, son of the legendary Danish goalkeeper of yesteryear Peter Schmeichel.
Having finished second at the last World Cup in South Africa 2010, the Dutch team hopes to correct an error in the forthcoming Euro 2012. Most experts suggest it is the team of Holland for one of the favorites in the tournament. Competition in the group it is deadly, so the match with Denmark is the only mandatory for winning before the next tough matches with Germany and Portugal.
One of the emerging host Euro 2012 Team Poland, taking the national team of Greece in a game that will launch the 14th European Cup. The two teams will face each other on the pitch at the National Stadium in Warsaw on Friday (6/8/2012)
Poland is one of the hosts of this major European tournament, which in turn is an important prerequisite for them to try to achieve something significant in this European Championship. The hosts will enjoy exceptional support from the crowd of his supporters, but at the same time will have to deal with high expectations that will inevitably have to them. However, the Polish national team has excellent players who are capable of surprise served beginning tournament. Most of them play in the league, as the German Bundesliga and particular attention must turn to the stars of the German champions Borussia Dortmund – Lukas Pishchek defender, midfielder and striker Jacob Blashchikovski Robert Lewandowski. It was top scorer of the team from Dortmund is expected to lead his teammates team to victory in this first match. Unfortunately for coach Frantisek Zhmuda Poland, England Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has received a shoulder injury and could not attend the upcoming Euro 2012. Watchman of “Arsenal” was injured during training camp of the Polish national team in Austria. So in its place among the elect of the breeder of Poland ended the Polish goalkeeper Grzegorz Yagieloniya Sandomierski.
Greece is presented in an impressive way in their qualification group for the upcoming Euro 2012, where he finished in first place in the final standings to teams of Croatia. So for the third time in its history, the national team of Greece will participate in the finals of a big tournament, such as the European Football Championship. Although most experts team underestimated the Greeks, we should not forget what made them years ago, the race in Portugal. And absolutely no one would put in their accounts team of our southern neighbor, but here they were able to compete for the trophy, only in its second part of this championship. Now, however, Greece’s national team will be without coach Otto Rehhagel, which achieved its greatest success in history, but nevertheless have the strength to wrong accounts in the group, get involved in the distribution of one of the first two places . However, we should pay attention to the fact that since the euro became champions in 2004, since then the Greeks have few major successes of football forums. The team was eliminated in the group stages of Euro 2008 and World Cup in South Africa two years later.
This preliminary Group A is the most equivalent group of all. Each from Poland, Russia, Czech Republic and Greece have a real chance of ranking in the next stage of the tournament, in the absence of a prominent leader in the group, such as Spain or Germany. In case the household will be a factor in favor of Poland, but this in turn requires hosts to open and play offensive football, something that is definitely a taste of their upcoming rival Greece who practice very defensive style of play. Generally such big tournament first match in most cases end in a tie with very few goals scored and tensions, which will host hanging over the mandatory victory, Poland and Greece expect to share one point in the opening match.
Bayern Munich and Chelsea face each other in the finals of this year’s Champions League. Bavarians are not doing a very good season, came second in the league and reached the German Cup final, lost disastrously from Borussia Dortmund. In the Champions League Bayern finished first in their group to Naples, Manchester City and Villarreal with his 13 points scored after 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss and goal difference 11:6. On 1/8-finalite fell to the surprise of the season and after Basel 0-1 in Switzerland and 7-0 team from Munich continued. On 1/4-final game with Marseille and two wins with 2-0 ranks 1/2-final. There, a game against Real Madird, winning 2-1 at home, losing 1-2 in Madrid and then reached the final shootout. Chelsea did a good season so far. If the team wins the Champions League, this will be the best season in history, but lost it will be a failure. The team of Roberto Di Matteo has won the FA Cup after beating Liverpool. If Chelsea triumph in the Champions League, will play there next year. Arsenal have finished first in their group to Bayer Leverkusen, Valencia and Genk with its 11 points scored after 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss and goal difference 13:4. On 1/8-finalite played with Napoli and then dramas – 1:3 and 4:1 after extra time went on. On 1/4-final Chelsea game and then beat Benfica 1-0 2-1 and reach 1/2-final. There he fell in Barcelona and just when everyone had written off the “blue”, they won 1-0 at home 2-2 and made in Spain with a man less. We expect a very interesting game, which I think Chelsea will win or at least get to the draw.
Manchester City will face Manchester United at “Etihad Stadium” in the derby of the 36th round of the Premier League. The hosts are on 2nd place in the standings with 80 points in their asset earned after twenty-five wins, five draws and five losses, with goal difference 87:27. In their last five league games “citizens” recorded three wins, one draw and one loss. Overall performance of Manchester City at home until the season is sixteen wins and one draw, with goal difference 51:10. The only player who is doubtful for the hosts is Mother Richards, who will undergo a late fitness test before deciding whether to take part in the fight.Manchester United is 1 st place in the standings with 83 points in their asset achieved after twenty-six wins, five draws and four losses, with goal difference 86:32. In their last five league matches ‘Reds’ recorded three wins, one draw and one loss. Overall presentation of the Manchester United away until the season is twelve wins, three draws and two losses, with goal difference 36:13. Sir Alex Ferguson will not be able to rely on long-term injured Anders Lindegaard, Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic and Paul Pogba and late fitness test will pass Jonny Evans, Michael Owen and Luis Nani. Here are the starting lineup for both teams battle for Manchester City will begin: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Toure Yaya, Barry, Silva, Tevez, Aguero and Nasri. For Manchester United match will start De Hea, Smalling, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Nani, Rooney and Welbeck. Expect to witness a very qualitative and controversial collision in which I think Manchester United will win at least a point and will largely secure record twentieth title in the Premier League.
